SKU: N/A Categories: ,


The Lielupe River flows through the Seaside Lowlands, reaching Jurmala, where it has reached its most precious appearance, at a depth of up to 15-20m. In the stretch from Slokas to its inlet, the river is separated from the Gulf of Riga by only a 1-2 km wide strip of land. The way to the sea is crossed by dolomite and sandstone cliffs, as well as dunes, so the Lielupe River flows parallel to the sea coast for 25 km. Its current estuary in the sea was formed in the spring floods of 1755-1757 (previously, the Lielupe flowed into the Daugava via the Buļļupe). The Lielupe Estuary Meadows Nature Reserve has been located at the mouth of the Lielupe River since 2000.

On this route, you can explore the stone art of the world-famous Latvian sculptor Pauls Jaunzems, reach a place where you can stand with one foot on the shore of the Lielupe River and with the other on the seafront, find a ghost ship in the river’s reed maze, and finally climb the Lielupe White Dune to watch the sky turn red at sunset.
